HOLLYWOOD – The Star Wars stand alone movie dealing with the young Han Solo has its star in Taylor Lautner, fresh from his success a few years ago in the Twilight series.
Well, I thought the first three weren’t very good, but as soon as Han Solo and Luke Skywalker turned up they really improved.
What have you done to prepare for the role?
I’ve worn a waistcoat and it feels quite comfortable, but I’m going to insist that at some point I take my shirt off. Otherwise, I can’t really, you know, act. Properly.
Have you spoken to Harrison Ford and what was his reaction to the news?
Harrison’s great. He’s been real supportive. I remember my first conversation with him. He said ‘I’m just glad it ain’t that goddamn Shia LaBeouf!’ I don’t think an actor can hear more encouraging words than those.
Han Begins will be released in 2016.
